Suggested March 2024 Dell Vostro 1310 Review: For Road Warriors

True to the promises Dell made last summer when it introduced its Vostro line of desktops and notebooks, the company continues to update and expand the family of PCs designed specifically for small business tech buyers. The Dell Vostro 1310 is thinner and lighter than previous Vostro notebooks, and it’s more in tune with what a daily traveler needs out on the road.

Unlike previous models, which used 14.1- or 15.4-inch screens more suited to desk duty, the Vostro 1310 employs a 13.3-inch wide-screen LCD that has become the display of choice for road-going pros. It allows for a more comfortable viewing experience than the 12-inch (or smaller) screens found on many “ultra-portable” laptops, while still keeping the size and weight manageable for daily travel.

Weighing about 4.5 pounds, the Vostro 1310 is easy to slip into a bag or tote around the office. Its angular chassis sports a glossy lid with a black metallic-flake automotive finish that lends visual interest while still being subtle enough not to draw stares at a client meeting.

Flip open the lid, and you’ll find a roomy, comfortable keyboard. A responsive touchpad makes for smooth mouse control, and the mouse buttons are easy to press while also delivering the right amount of tactile and audible feedback. We also appreciate the touch-sensitive multimedia and volume control keys above the keyboard, which makes it easy to adjust the volume or switch tracks or chapters on a CD or DVD. (A mute button would have been nice, though.) Certain models include a 1.3-megapixel Webcam above the screen, ideal for videoconferencing, video chats and even quick snapshots.

The Dell Vostro 1310 delivers sharp looks and plenty of features for a bargain price.

The 13.3-inch screen’s 1,280×800 resolution makes for crisp, readable text. The screen has a matte finish, not the mirror-like glossy surface that has become the norm in recent years. While the matte coating diminishes the vibrancy of images somewhat, it also minimizes the glare and reflections that plague glossy screens.

One weak point we found, however, is the Vostro 1310’s underpowered, low-quality monaural speaker. Sound quality is tinny and thin, and the volume is adequate only for one or two listeners; if you plan to present to a group around a conference table with the Vostro 1310, bring external speakers.

We’re happy to see an integrated fingerprint reader that you can use to prevent unauthorized people from accessing the machine’s hard drive. Simply use the included software to register your fingerprints, and when Windows boots it will ask you to swipe your finger to log on. It’s an extra layer of protection for your data that we feel any business laptop should offer.

Another trick feature is the slot-loading multi-format DVD burner. Like the CD player in your car’s dashboard, there’s no tray that pops out, you just slide in the disc. Dell also included all the ports you’re likely to need—except one. You get four USB ports, a FireWire connector, memory card and ExpressCard slots, a VGA-out port and a wired LAN jack to augment the integrated Wi-Fi. Oddly, however, Dell opted not to include a good old modem jack. So if you sometimes find yourself in motels that just offer dial-up connectivity, you’ll have to purchase and carry an external USB modem.

Dell Vostro 460: Business Pc Is All Work And No Play

The Dell Vostro 460 is a speedy business desktop equipped with Intel’s recently launched Sandy Bridge processor. It starts at $529 (as of March 10, 2011), but our review configuration–which came with a 21.5-inch widescreen monitor–is priced at $1393 ($1163 sans monitor). The system we reviewed packs a decent feature set, including an Intel Core i7-2600 processor, 4GB of RAM (upgradable to 16GB), and Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.

The rear of the machine offers an additional five USB ports (four USB and one USB 3.0), an eSATA port, an S/PDIF-out, gigabit ethernet, 7.1 surround sound, a VGA connector, and an HDMI connector. That’s right: This desktop has no discrete graphics card, and Dell is relying on the Sandy Bridge processor’s improved integrated graphics to hold the fort.

The keyboard and mouse are simple and match the chassis; both peripherals are, unfortunately, wired (USB). The flat keyboard features matte-black keys that offer good feedback. Since the keys are smooth, typing quickly is a little difficult if you’re unaccustomed to the shape; the keys are widely spaced, however, making typing errors a little less likely. The two-button mouse is smooth, rounded, and comfortable to use, though it did feel somewhat small to me (and I have small hands).

Our test model came with a 21.5-inch widescreen monitor. As displays go it’s fairly matte, with a 1920-by-1080-pixel resolution and good contrast. Its off-axis angles are not very good for a matte screen, but at least it doesn’t throw reflections back at you. The display is a little too wide for my taste (note that this monitor is nearly twice as long as it is high), but that’s a matter of personal preference. The monitor has a black, squared-off bezel with sharp corners, and lacks a Webcam. Five small buttons–a power button plus four context-sensitive soft keys to adjust the monitor’s settings–sit along the lower-right side.

As for performance, the Vostro 460 does well for its category. It earned a WorldBench 6 score of 156, which puts it just above our second-best performer, the Maingear F131 (with a mark of 152). It’s still pretty far behind our top performer in the mainstream-PC category, the MicroFlex 25B, which received a WorldBench 6 score of 188.

Although the Vostro 460’s Intel i7-2600 CPU does its job in terms of general performance, graphics performance is another story. The Vostro 460 doesn’t come with a discrete graphics card, relying instead on the Core i7-2600’s integrated graphics. In our Unreal Tournament 3 graphics performance tests, the Vostro 460 managed to eke out only an unplayable 14.8 frames per second at a resolution of 2560 by 1600 pixels with high quality settings. It wasn’t until we scaled the resolution down to 1024 by 768 that we got a reasonably playable frame rate of 37 fps (on high quality settings).

Gaming isn’t likely to be high on a small business’s list of priorities anyway, so feel free to ignore those results if you’re just looking for a number-cruncher. If you’d like to toss your own discrete graphics card into the Vostro 460, however, you can: Just unscrew the left side of the chassis, and you’re in. The interior of the Vostro 460 is a tad messy, but workable. Though wires are held together with twist ties and haphazardly scattered about, the case has enough room for upgrading. The chassis sports two 5.25-inch bays (one free), two 3.5-inch bays (one free), three PCIe x1 slots (two free), and one PCI slot. So although you won’t be able to transform this PC into a dual-graphics-card gaming rig, you have sufficient space to install an extra card, and perhaps another hard drive if you’re up for it.

Dell G7 15 (7588) Review: A Six

View Deal

The Dell G7 15 is a mid-size gaming laptop with middle-of-the-road GTX 1060 Max-Q graphics, middling battery life, and—you guessed it—a mid-range price tag of $1,200. But this system boasts a stellar feature that sets it apart from the crowd: a six-core, benchmark-crushing Core i7 processor that’ll thrill content creators. Indeed, the G7 15’s overall performance is only a step or two behind that of our current 15-inch gaming laptop, the thinner and lighter MSI GS65 Stealth Thin 8RE, while costing about $600 less. Among our quibbles: a dim screen and an occasionally too-hot chassis.

Best Prices Today:

On the visual side, the G7 15 boasts a 15.6-inch anti-glare full-HD (1920×1080) IPS-technology display, plus an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 processor with 6GB of GDDR5 RAM and Max-Q design (which puts a lid on performance to cut power consumption and heat output). Sitting in the middle of Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 10 Series video cards, the GTX 1060 with Max-Q reliably delivers 60 fps and up for most current top-tier games.

You can knock about $120 off the price tag of our G7 15 review unit by snapping up a model with 8GB of RAM rather than 16GB, while the priciest version swaps in a beefier, overclockable six-core i9-8950HK processor. There’s also a G7 15 laptop with a 4K display (plus the standard i7-8750H CPU) for $1,499. Incidentally, every laptop in Dell’s G7 15 line comes with the same GTX 1060 graphics card with Max-Q design.

Design

Measuring 15.32 x 10.82 x 0.98 inches and weighing a substantial but not prohibitive 6 pounds, 4 ounces (or 7 pounds, 2 ounces with the chunky 180-watt AC adapter), the Dell G7 15’s heft paradoxically makes it feel thinner than you’d expect. That said, the G7 made for a tight squeeze in my 15-inch laptop bag.

Adam Patrick Murray/IDG

The twin cooling vents in back of the Dell G7 15 look understated, yet awesome.

Available in “Licorice Black” and “Alpine White” flavors (we tested the Alpine White variety), the Dell G7 15 boasts a sporty yet understated look. The plain, somewhat inconspicuous lid is offset by a slanted front edge that boasts a nifty black grille, while the twin cooling vents in back look elegant and powerful.

Display

The Dell G7 15’s non-touch, 1920×1080 display boasts solid viewing angles. The display dims a bit starting around 45 degrees from the sides, top and bottom, with no signs of inverse colors as you might see on a cheap laptop screen. That’s pretty much par for the course when it comes to an IPS display like the G7’s.

Adam Patrick Murray/IDG

The Dell G7 15’s 15.6-inch IPS display delivers good viewing angles, but we wish it was brighter.

Keyboard, trackpad, speakers, webcam

The Dell G7 15’s chiclet-style keyboard is standard mid-range laptop fare, with smooth, flat keys, decent travel and a snappy tactile bump in the middle of each keystroke. The outlined WASD keys did their respective jobs during gaming, neither impressing me nor getting in my way. A 10-key numeric keypad sits on the right, while standard function-enabled hotkeys such as screen lock, search, brightness, media playback, and airplane mode are also on tap. The G7 eschews fancy LED backlighting schemes for a basic two-step blue glow.

Adam Patrick Murray/IDG

Nothing about the Dell G7 15’s backlit keyboard screams “gaming” except for the outlined WASD keys.

While they’re no substitute for a good pair of headphones, the Dell G7 15’s top-firing speakers are a slight cut above the tinny, bass-deprived speakers you’ll find in most laptops. Music sounded relatively detailed without collapsing into mush. While you shouldn’t expect any big beats, at least you’ll hear a hint of bass. You can also crank the G7’s speakers to an impressively high volume—a good thing, as it turns out, because the cooling fans have a tendency to spin themselves up to a roar during graphically intense games. (More on the G7 15’s heat issues in a moment.)

Video captured by the Dell G7 15’s webcam (its lens sits in the top bezel of the display) looks typically grainy and blotchy, albeit with decent contrast and color. While the G7’s webcam is fine for Skype, gamers looking to make waves on Twitch would do better with a dedicated lens.

Ports

The Dell G7 15 comes with a solid selection of ports, starting on the left with an ethernet port, USB 3.1 Gen. 2 Type-A, and an SD memory card reader. Also on the left side: a Noble lock security port and a barrel-shaped power-in port.

Adam Patrick Murray/IDG

The left-side ports on the Dell G7 15 include ethernet, a USB 3.0 port, and an SD memory card reader.

Adam Patrick Murray/IDG

A Thunderbolt 3 port sits on the right side of the Dell G7 15, along with HDMI 2.0, a pair of USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, and an audio jack.

General performance

While the Dell G7 15’s middle-of-the-road GTX 1060 Max-Q video card delivers expectedly mid-range graphics performance, its six-core CPU—among the first we’ve seen in a relatively thin gaming laptop, although we can expect many more in the near future—cranked out some truly impressive numbers, perfect for gamers who want to take a break from shooting things to create other things.

HandBrake

In our first benchmark, we use the free HandBrake utility to encode a 40GB video file into an Android tablet-compatible format. It’s a CPU-intensive job that can take an hour or more to complete, and it tends to spin up cooling fans in the process. While a good HandBrake score doesn’t necessarily equate to stellar gaming visuals (we’ll get to gaming performance in a moment), it does bode well for YouTube content creators, Twitch broadcasters, or anyone else who plans on multitasking while gaming.

Melissa Riofrio/IDG

The Dell G7 15 chewed through our Handbrake benchmark thanks to its speedy hex-core i7 CPU.

Processors with the most cores generally do better with HandBrake, and yes, the Dell G7 15 and its six-core Core i7-8750H CPU absolutely crushes it. Indeed, with its Handbrake score of 2,035 seconds, or just a little over half an hour, the G7 15 trails only the similar six-core MSI GS65 Stealth Thin 8RE, a razor-thin gaming laptop that costs $600 more.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin 8RE

Read our review

Cinebench

Melissa Riofrio/IDG

The Dell G7 15’s Cinebench score shows what a difference six cores of processing power make compared to four.

Unsurprisingly, the 12-threaded Dell G7 15 shines when it comes to Cinebench’s multi-threaded test, one again notching a score only slightly behind that of the MSI GS65 Stealth Thin 8RE, while handily dusting its quad-core competition. We’re also pleased by the Dell’s chart-topping single-thread result.

(Note: Results for the Gigabyte Aero 15X, a system seen in other charts in this story, were not available for this test.)

Gaming performance

Melissa Riofrio/IDG

The Dell G7 15’s mid-range GTX 1060 video card unsurprisingly lands it in the middle of pack when it comes to FireStrike Extreme.

The Dell G7 15’s FireStrike Extreme score lands in the middle of the pack, which makes perfect sense given its GTX 1060 with Max-Q. The top two finishers in our chart, the MicroCenter PowerSpec 15 and the Gigabyte Aero 15X P65Q, boast more powerful GTX 1070 cards, while most of the laptops that trail the Dell have GTX 1050 GPUs. The MSI GS65 Stealth Thin 8RE with a similar GTX 1060 card (albeit using a full-fat configuration, compared to the G7’s power-optimized Max-Q design) manages a slightly better FireStrike Extreme score than the G7 15, but as we’ll see in a moment, it doesn’t make much difference when it comes to real-world gaming.

(Note: Results for the HP Omen 15-ce0xx, a system seen in other charts in this story, were not available for this test.)

Speaking of real-world gaming, let’s begin with 2013’s Tomb Raider reboot, a game that leans a little more on CPU power than more recent titles.

Melissa Riofrio/IDG

Without a GTX 1070 or better video card, the Dell G7 15’s Tomb Raider frame rates are stuck in the 90 range.

We see more of the same with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. All the GTX 1060 Max-Q-powered laptops in our chart—including the Dell G7 15—bunched up roughly in the 80-90 fps range, while a pair of laptops with full-fat GTX 1060 graphics saw a modest bump to 90-100 fps.

Melissa Riofrio/IDG

As with Tomb Raider, the GTX 1060-powered Dell G7 15’s Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor frame rates are (fittingly) middle-of-the-road.

For Shadow of Mordor frame rates above 120, you’ll generally need to step up to a system with GTX 1070 or better graphics.

Finally, we fired up Rise of the Tomb Raider, a graphically intense title that demands at least GTX 1060 graphics to achieve a smooth 60 fps.

Melissa Riofrio/IDG

The Dell G7 15 and its GTX 1060 Max-Q video card can crank out Rise of the Tomb Raider above 60 fps, but only just.

Gaming laptops can get hot. Keep reading for our experience with the G7 15.

When a hot game gets too hot

Now, a word about heat. While playing Rise of the Tomb Raider, I noticed that the Dell G7 15’s cooling fans were roaring and the chassis got uncomfortably hot, particularly near the top of the keyboard and a tad to the right. Indeed, the 7, 8, and 9 keys got so hot that they felt like they were burning my fingertips.

After about on hour of Rise of the Tomb Raider, I check the G7’s CPU package temperature and got a reading of 98 degrees Celsius (208 degrees Fahrenheit), hot enough to boil water and a mere two degrees shy of the Core i7-8750H’s maximum operating temperature. The CPU also engaged thermal throttling repeatedly in an effort to cool things down.

Still, the G7’s tendency to run hot is an unfortunate fact of life for gaming laptops as thin and light (relatively speaking, anyway) as this one.

Battery life

You can’t expect all-day battery life from a gaming laptop, but the Dell G7 15 and its 55-watt-hour battery do a reasonably good job of staying alive without help from the bulky AC adapter.

We test battery life on a laptop by looping a 4K video using the stock Windows 10 Movies & TV app, with screen brightness set at about 250 nits (which, in the G7 15’s case, meant cranking the brightness all the way up) and volume dialed up to 50 percent, headphones plugged in.

Melissa Riofrio/IDG

The Dell G7 15’s battery life is relatively solid given its 55 watt-hour battery.

Conclusion

Armed with a screamingly fast six-core CPU and a fairly potent graphics card, the $1,200 Dell G7 15 packs an impressive amount of processing and gaming power into a shell that’s less than an inch thick. Gamers looking for the highest frame rates possible will find better value in a quad-core laptop with a beefier GPU, while those in search of a thinner and lighter hex-core gaming laptop should check out the pricey MSI GS65 Stealth Thin 8RE. But if you’re on a budget and want enough CPU power to stream or create videos while gaming, the G7 15 is an enticing, reasonably priced choice.

Review Del Dell Xps 13 2 En 1 (2023)

Pros

Diseño desmontable decente

Pantalla táctil IPS de alta calidad

Suficiente potencia para tareas diarias

Buen teclado y buenas cámaras

Contras

Más lento que muchos rivales

Puertos limitados

Batería mediocre

Nuestro veredicto

En lo que a las tablets Windows se refiere, el Dell XPS 13 2 en 1 es una opción decente por varios motivos. Su pantalla desmontable ofrece una buena calidad, tiene la potencia suficiente para una carga de tareas diarias, y el teclado funciona bien. Pero muchos de sus rivales son mejores por varios motivos.

Existen muchas razones para comprar un híbrido, entre ellas, la posibilidad de alternar entre una tablet y un portátil. Y con el Dell XPS 13 9315 2 en 1, el gigante informático estadounidense espera convencer a la gente de que deje atrás los portátiles normales.

El desmontable de Dell causa una buena primera impresión al combinar una elegante carcasa tipo folio con aluminio reciclado fresado mediante CNC, y en su interior encontrarás un eficiente procesador Intel.

El precio también resulta adecuado. El Dell XPS 13 2 en 1 más barato utiliza un procesador Core i5 y cuesta 1.698,82 € / US$1,149. Si quieres un modelo con Core i7, el precio sube hasta los 1.898,82 € / US$1,449.

Este dispositivo tiene muchas cosas a su favor, también mucha competencia. Uno de nuestros portátiles convertibles favoritos es el Samsung Galaxy Book 2 360, y portátiles como el Dell XPS 13 Plus, el MacBook Air con M2 de Apple y el Asus ZenBook S 13 OLED siguen siendo tentadores si no necesitas un modelo híbrido.

Diseño y calidad de fabricación

Un diseño desmontable robusto y atractivo

Otros portátiles e híbridos ofrecen más versatilidad

Buenas cámaras, pero pocos puertos

El dispositivo convertible XPS 13 tiene un muy buen aspecto gracias a los bordes de aluminio fresado mediante CNC y a la carcasa tipo folio en bronce de cañón. Ambas partes son robustas. La tablet es resistente y la funda Folio protege muy bien ambos lados.

La funda Folio se une a la tablet con una sólida conexión magnética en la parte inferior del panel. Una vez hecho esto, la funda magnética coloca la tablet en posición de portátil en ángulos de 100, 110,5 y 125 grados.

En la parte superior, hay un botón de encendido con lector de huellas integrado y un control de volumen. Las cámaras son excelentes: para las videollamadas, hay una lente de 5 MP con inicio de sesión Windows Hello, mientras que para los paisajes hay una cámara de 11 MP orientada hacia el exterior.

En su interior, tiene Wi-Fi 6E y Bluetooth 5.2.

Mike Jennings / Foundry

Es un buen comienzo, pero el XPS tiene limitaciones. La propia funda Folio angular, por ejemplo. Cualquier portátil ofrece más versatilidad de posicionamiento de la pantalla. El Samsung gira 360 grados y el pie de apoyo del Microsoft Surface Pro 9 puede colocarse en casi cualquier ángulo.

Como la mayoría de los portátiles desmontables, el XPS 13 2 en 1 es incómodo de usar sobre la falda. Con un tamaño de 300 mm en modo portátil, es más largo que cualquier rival. Y aunque el peso y el grosor combinados de 1,3 kg y 17 mm están bien, todos los rivales son más delgados y ligeros.

Tampoco esperes mucho en términos de conectividad física. El borde izquierdo tiene dos puertos Thunderbolt 4, pero eso es todo y necesitarás uno de ellos para cargarlo.

Dell incluye adaptadores de auriculares y USB A en la caja, pero, en cambio, el MacBook Air tiene un puerto para auriculares y el Asus, tres puertos USB-C. El Samsung tiene conectores HDMI, USB A, microSD y auriculares.

Teclado y trackpad

Impresionante teclado de borde a borde

Buen trackpad

Retroiluminación, pero sin teclado numérico

El teclado utiliza el mismo diseño “sin ranuras” de borde a borde que el XPS 13 Plus. Puede sorprender al principio (un teclado sin huecos y sin apenas recorrido), pero es fácil cogerle el tranquillo.

Es mejor que el teclado del Surface Pro 9, más satisfactorio que el de Samsung, y no está muy lejos de la calidad del MacBook”

Mike Jennings / Foundry

Los botones son rápidos y sensibles, y la carcasa aporta resistencia. Es mejor que el teclado del Surface Pro 9, más satisfactorio que el de Samsung, y no está muy lejos de la calidad del MacBook.

La retroiluminación es decente, y el trackpad también es bueno: grande y cómodo, y con botones sensibles a los que solo les faltaría ser un poco más nítidos.

Pantalla y altavoces

Panel IPS de alto contraste y alta resolución

La pantalla táctil funciona bien con el lápiz XPS opcional

Los altavoces débiles y encontrarás mejores pantallas en otros dispositivos

Todas las versiones del Dell XPS 13 2 en 1 tienen la misma pantalla IPS. El panel 3:2 tiene una resolución de 2880 x 1920, por lo que ofrece muchos detalles. El cristal Gorilla Glass Victus de borde a borde protege bien el panel.

El brillo máximo del panel permite que sea usado fácilmente en interiores y exteriores, y la relación de contraste es de lo mejor que se puede conseguir en un panel IPS”

La pantalla es táctil y compatible con el lápiz XPS, que tiene 4.096 puntos de presión y es una opción excelente para el trabajo creativo. También se fija magnéticamente a la parte superior de la pantalla, una solución de almacenamiento muy práctica. Sin embargo, el lápiz óptico no viene incluido y cuesta 116,17 € / US$99.99 extra.

El brillo máximo del panel, de 528 nits, permite que sea usado fácilmente en interiores y exteriores, y la relación de contraste de 2.031:1 es de lo mejor que se puede conseguir en un panel IPS, por lo que los colores vivos van acompañados de una gran profundidad y muchos matices.

Mike Jennings / Foundry

Los colores también son precisos gracias al Delta E de 1,1, aunque esta pantalla solo reproduce la gama sRGB: produce el 94,8 % de ese espacio, pero solo el 70 % de las gamas Adobe RGB y DCI-P3.

Esos resultados significan que el XPS es ideal para cargas de trabajo diarias y tareas creativas, pero no es adecuado para trabajos de diseño profesional o medios HDR.

Tanto el XPS 13 Plus como el ZenBook usan paneles OLED de alta resolución con mejor contraste y color. El convertible Samsung usa OLED, aunque a menor resolución, y la tasa de refresco de 120 Hz del Surface Pro 9 dobla la cifra de los 60 Hz del Dell, lo que hace que la experiencia sea más fluida.

Los dos altavoces de 2 W son un poco flojos, pero funcionan bien para escuchar música de fondo y ver vídeos en YouTube. La oferta de Apple es mucho mejor.

Especificaciones y rendimiento

Intel Core i5-1230U o i7-1250U

8 GB o 16 GB de memoria DDR4

SSD de 512 GB o 1 TB

Las dos variantes 2 en 1 del XPS 13 utilizan los procesadores de bajo consumo Core i5-1230U y Core i7-1250U de Intel, que tienen dos núcleos de rendimiento multihilo con velocidades máximas respectivas de 4,4 y 4,7 GHz.

La versión i5 tiene 8 GB de memoria, mientras que el equipo con Core i7 duplica esa cifra, pero ambas son solo una RAM DDR4, cuando la mayoría de los rivales utilizan ya DDR5. La unidad SSD de 512 GB que he probado tiene unas velocidades de lectura y escritura razonables, de 4.988 MB/s y 3.586 MB/s.

No tendrás ningún problema ejecutando aplicaciones ofimáticas, teniendo muchas pestañas abiertas en el navegador o reproduciendo música o vídeos en streaming“

No hay nada que destacar sobre el papel, y los benchmarks tampoco son muy alegres. En el test multinúcleo de Geekbench 5, la puntuación de 6.898 está varios cientos de puntos por detrás del chip AMD del Asus, y todavía más lejos del i7-1260P del XPS 13 Plus y del chip M2 de Apple.

PCMark 10 no dio tregua. El resultado del XPS 13 2-en-1 de 4.969 se queda por detrás del Asus y el Dell XPS 13 Plus. En nuestras pruebas, el XPS 13 2 en 1 solo consiguió superar al Samsung, que usa un Core i5-1235U.

Mike Jennings / Foundry

No esperes mucha potencia del chip gráfico Iris Xe de Intel. Su resultado en la prueba 3DMark Night Raid de 11.151 está muy por detrás del núcleo Radeon integrado en el Asus y también por detrás del mismo chip Iris en el i7-1260P.

No tendrás ningún problema ejecutando aplicaciones ofimáticas, teniendo muchas pestañas abiertas en el navegador o reproduciendo música o vídeos en streaming. Además, el XPS puede manejar algunas herramientas básicas de edición de fotos y vídeo.

Si intentas hacer algo más exigente, empezará a fallar y se verá superado por los chips de la serie P, Ryzen o Apple que encontramos en otros modelos. Definitivamente, recomiendo apostar por el modelo con 16 GB si eliges el modelo con Core i5.

Al menos, no tendrás que lidiar con el ruido del ventilador, pues este Dell se enfría pasivamente. Eso va bien para trabajar en silencio, pero significa que la parte superior de la tablet se calentará un poco con un uso más exigente. Lo notarás, pero no es peligroso.

Batería y carga

Batería de 49,5 Wh

Carga de 45 W

La duración de la batería es mediocre. La batería de 49,5 Wh duró 9 horas y 25 minutos en una prueba de reproducción de vídeo con la pantalla a brillo reducido, pero solo 8 horas y 27 minutos en una prueba de trabajo diario con el mismo nivel de brillo.

Si aumentas el brillo de la pantalla o exiges más de los componentes, obtendrás unas siete horas, y podrás cargar hasta un decente 37 % de la batería en 30 minutos.

Mike Jennings / Foundry

En algunos casos, el XPS no aguantará un día de trabajo, y algunos rivales son mejores en este aspecto. Conseguirás el doble de batería con el Asus y casi tanta con el MacBook y el Galaxy Book.

Precio y disponibilidad

En España, el XPS 13 2 en 1 más barato incluye un i5-1230U con 16 GB de memoria y 512 de almacenamiento, y cuesta 1.698,82 €. En Estados Unidos, hay la opción de comprarlo con una memoria de 8 GB, con un precio de US$1,149.

La versión Core i7-1250U viene también con 16 GB de memoria por defecto, y cuesta 1.898,82 € / US$1,449. Pasar de una SSD de 512 GB a una unidad de 1 TB solo está disponible en el modelo Core i7 y sube el precio a los 2.098,82 € / US$1,599.

Como es habitual, puedes comprar el XPS directamente desde la web de Dell.

Comprar XPS 13 2 en 1 (2023)

El mejor modelo es la versión Core i7 con 16 GB de memoria. Pero si estás dispuesto a prescindir del elemento desmontable que ofrece este Dell, es fácil encontrar un portátil potente asequible, como el Asus ZenBook o el Dell XPS 13 Plus.

Mike Jennings / Foundry

Si te conformas con un chip de la serie U, puedes optar por el XPS 13. El Galaxy Book 2 360 cuesta 851 € / US$799.99, y el Galaxy Book 3 360 cuesta 1.699 € / US$1,049.99. Varios de estos tienen mejores pantallas que el XPS, aunque no todos sean híbridos.

El MacBook también tiene una buena relación calidad-precio (más en Estados Unidos que en España), pues parte de los 1.519 € / US$1,199, aunque los precios suben si optas por el chip M2 más potente y 16 GB de memoria.

Echa un vistazo a nuestro ranking de los mejores portátiles y los mejores portátiles 2 en 1 si quieres ver todas las opciones.

Veredicto

Si nos fijamos en el precio, estamos ante una opción de gama media cuanto al precio, aunque también es bastante estándar en otros departamentos.

El procesador puede ejecutar tareas ofimáticas y creativas cotidianas, pero nada más exigente, y la pantalla es táctil, brillante y atrevida, pero sin la amplitud de color necesaria para las situaciones de diseño profesionales. La batería apenas dura todo el día.

Por lo demás, el XPS tiene un buen teclado, pero es más pesado, más grueso y posiblemente menos versátil que sus rivales, y la pantalla es robusta y está bien equipada con cámaras, pero apenas tiene puertos.

Es difícil de recomendar. El XPS 13 2 en 1 es una buena opción si quieres un dispositivo desmontable para el día a día en lugar de un híbrido con bisagra de 360º. Pero sea cual tu motivo por querer comprar un nuevo convertible o portátil, probablemente encontrarás una opción mejor en otro sitio.

Dell Xps 13 9300 Review: The Bezel Is Finally Dead

Dell’s XPS 13 9300 takes a step back in performance, but its beautiful screen, small footprint, and near-perfect size still make it one of the best ultraportable laptops.

With Dell’s XPS 13 9300, you can mark a momentous date in laptop history: the death of the laptop bezel. Previous models killed the top and sides, but that last useless part has stuck around until now.

The story of the XPS 13 is a long and storied one at this point. When the first “InfinityBezel” version hit the scene in 2024, it set the trend for what could be done in a tiny laptop, forcing competitors to reevaluate their designs. The latest XPS 13 9300 ($1,749 at chúng tôi may not move the ball forward much in performance, but its 16:10 aspect-ratio InfinityBezel touch screen and dual biometric inputs still make a difference.

This review is part of of our ongoing roundup of the best laptops. Go there for information on competing models and how we tested them. 

Dell

Dell’s 2023 XPS 13 9300 achieves full no-bezel.

Why thin bezels matter

Lest you think we’re raving about an inconsequential feature, you just have to look back to 2023, when companies were still selling laptops with so much bezel, you could sell billboard space on them. Apple’s 2023-era MacBook Air, for example, looks about as fashion-correct as disco-era bell-bottom pants and wide-lapel paisley shirts would seem during the grunge era.

Best Buy

The 2023 MacBook Air 13’s big bezel epitomized the wasted space of laptops of yore, and it looks ridiculously out of date and huge in this day and age.

For the new XPS 13 9300, Dell wisely eschews the common, narrow 16:9 aspect ratio that lowers the overall height of the screen. The company instead goes with a taller 16:10 aspect ratio for the 13.4-inch screen. The top of the screen is about the same height as that of a more conventional 16:9 laptop, such as the HP Elite Dragonfly, giving you more screen real estate without increasing the size of the laptop.

The screen itself is a beautiful 450-nit IPS touchscreen. When we say IPS, we mean actual Sharp IPS too, not the “IPS-like” or “wide-viewing angle” language companies use to describe copycat versions. This is a beautiful, top-quality display that will help you stay productive. 

Dell XPS 13 9300 Specs and Features

While the display is clearly the star of the XPS 13 9300’s configuration, it offers plenty more top-shelf parts in its slender chassis. Here are the details.

CPU: 10th gen Core i7-1065G7

GPU: Intel integrated Iris Plus

RAM: 16GB LPDDR4X/3733

Storage: 512GB Intel 760P NVMe SSD

Display: 13.4-inch 1920×1200 Sharp IPS 

Biometric Support: Realtek biometric camera in top bezel, Goodix finger print reader integrated into power button.

Ports: The XPS 13 9300 features one Thunderbolt 3 port on each side, a microSD reader on the left side, and an analog combo audio jack on the right side. Compared to the previous model, you’re losing one USB-C port and the wedge-lock port. As with the prior model there is no USB-A port. If you retain any legacy USB-A devices or just need more connectivity, it’s time to buy a USB-C hub.

Gordon Mah Ung

Ports on the XPS 13 9300 are pretty easy. Each side features a Thunderbolt 3 port. The left side has a microSD reader. The right side adds an analog combo audio jack.

Networking: Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650, Bluetooth 5

Size and weight: 11.6 x 7.8 x 0.27 inches, 2.9 pounds without AC adapter

Upgradability: “Upgrades” on modern ultraportable laptops are always very limited, but Dell keeps it down to earth with a standard M.2 slot for the Intel SSD inside of it. This may seem like no big deal, but the XPS 13 2-in-1 7390 soldered its SSD. Dell’s reason (like Apple’s) is to save space and make the laptop thinner, but many have roasted the company for the move.

The keyboard in the XPS 13 9300 is good ol’ traditional dome, and it feels great.

Keyboard, Trackpad and Webcam

Gordon Mah Ung

Dell’s new XPS 13 13 9300 features a single thick heat pipe, two fans plus a standard M.2 slot.

The keys are about 0.75mm wider than the keys from the previous XPS 13 7390’s. They also seem to be a little flatter. Overall, we think it’s an improvement. The trackpad is glass-smooth and support Microsoft’s Precision touchpad drivers. We essentially have no complaints here.

Gordon Mah Ung

The XPS 13 9300’s webcam is fair and far from the worst we’ve seen.

So yes, webcam performance suddenly matters again. Most models you’ll find use the 720p resolution, but that doesn’t mean they’re all the same. Some vendors, including Dell, may employ software tricks to enhance 720p video quality. Others, including Apple, appear to be caught flat-footed with inferior 720p output. While a 1080p webcam may seems like a desirable upgrade, remember that the higher resolution creates a larger data file—which may end up getting compressed by applications such as Zoom anyway. 

Dell XPS 13 9300 Performance

For the newest XPS 13 9300, Dell takes an interesting approach for the CPU, which is actually somewhat of a step back in performance. You read that right: The performance of the newest XPS 13 9300 is step back compared to the XPS 13 7390, which features a 6-core CPU. We’ll get into how to navigate that later on.

Cinebench multi-thread and single-thread

We’ll kick off the benchmarks with Maxon’s Cinebench R15. It’s a standalone benchmark that measures CPU performance while rendering a 3D image. While it’s not a task many will do on an ultraportable laptop, it’s still a good way to gauge multi-core performance.

The keyword is multi-core, because the quad-core 10th gen Core i7-1065G7 isn’t going to beat the six-core 10th-gen Core i7-10710U that’s used in the XPS 13 7390, even if the latter CPU is a little older. Those concerned about multi-core performance in an XPS 13 may want to nab the older XPS 13 7390 instead of the XPS 13 9300.

IDG

In multi-core performance, the XPS 13 9300 takes a step back from the older XPS 13 7390. Both Default and Performance modes are shown here.

IDG

Single-threaded performance is pretty close between the earlier XPS 13 7390 model and the current XPS 13 9300.

HandBrake

One issue with Cinebench and other similar tests is the short run times. Because modern CPUs rely on boosting clock speeds for short periods, a benchmark that’s too brief doesn’t tell you how a laptop might run on a lengthy all-core load.

To test that, we use the free HandBrake encoder to convert a 30GB movie file using the Android tablet preset. On most quad-cores, you’re looking at 50 minutes of running the CPU hard. Performance of the XPS 13 9300 is in line with that of most 10th-gen Core i7-1065G7 laptops.

IDG

HandBrake can take 50 minutes to run on an ultraportable laptop with a quad-core CPU.

As we said before: Unless you really need to hammer an all-core workload all the time, the performance doesn’t matter that much. For example, if all you do is drive Office and a browser all day, multi-core performance doesn’t matter.

PCMark 8 Work

IDG

PCMark 8 Work tell us the CPU doesn’t really matter much if all you do is drive a browser and Office.

IDG

The new Iris Plus graphics cores in the XPS 13 9300 easily outrun the older XPS 13 7390’s UHD.

Battery life

The most important metric of any ultraportable laptop is likely its battery life. For our test, we loop a 4K video file using Windows’ Movies & TV app. We set up the laptop as if it were playing a movie on a cross-country flight. We put it into airplane mode and attach earbuds with the volume set to its midpoint. We set the screen brightness to 250 to 260 nits, which is a comfortably bright settting for an office or airplane’s daylight settings.

The overall performance of the XPS 13 9300 is quite good, with playback lasting just over 12 hours. It’s not quite as good as HP’s Spectre x360 13t, which runs to nearly 16 hours, but the Spectre has a larger battery and a “1-watt” panel.

IDG

The XPS 13 9300’s battery lasts just over 12 hours during video playback.

Conclusion

The Dell XPS 13 9300 enters 2023 with more competition than ever. In 2024, 360-degree designs were still unproven and very rough. Today’s versions, such as the XPS 13 2-in-1, give up nothing while also offering tablet and pen functionality. The utility of those designs are so good these days, we wonder whether the days of pure clamshell laptops are reaching their end. 

If we are truly coming to the end of clamshell laptops as the preference, we recognize that Dell’s XPS 13 9300 just might be the pinnacle of what can be done. It’s small, thin, and light, with a beautiful display and nearly flawless features. The addition of Iris Plus graphics erases a weakness with its predecessor. It’s one of the best laptops we’ve ever tested. 

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified the XPS 13 7390 as the XPS 13 2-in-1 7390. PCWorld regrets the error.

Dell Latitude E7440 Review: Hefty To Carry, But A Joy To Use

Dell’s engineers have built a dream machine for business users on the go, although we have a few quibbles about weight and battery life.

While taking notes for my review of Dell’s latest business notebook, I repeatedly found myself saying “Well, on the other hand…” The Latitude E7440 is bulky for a 14-inch Ultrabook— it’s almost a pound heavier than Lenovo’s X1 Carbon Touch. On the other hand, it’s super tough. You could drop it on the sidewalk and it’d still deliver the sales projections for tomorrow’s meeting. It’s outfitted with both HDMI and DisplayPort. On the other hand, you’ll need to carry a VGA adapter to connect it to the old video projector in the boardroom. Its battery croaks after just 4.5 hours. On the other hand, it’s removable, so you can swap in a spare.

See what I mean? 

One thing my two hands and I agree on: We love using the Latitude E7440. It’s comfortable to work on in and out of my home office. The 14-inch IPS touchscreen is crisp and very bright, yet it’s remarkably resistant to glare and fingerprints, and responds beautifully to my touch. My fingers fly around on its large keyboard like they were made for each other, and the trackpad works great when I need it and stays out of the way when I don’t (read: no AWOL cursors). The keyboard deck has just the right slightly rubbery feel that lets my palms rest comfortably on it for long stretches.

Dell’s Latitude E7440 has a great keyboard and trackpad. 

On the other hand, its $1949 price tag sticks in my craw. And I’m sure it will stick in yours, too, whether you’re a consumer, small business owner, or an IT buyer for a large enterprise. On the other hand, quality-made tools are expensive. Let’s see what the Latitude E7440’s price-to-performance ratio looks like.

Tough but attractive

The E7440 manages to be both pretty and rugged, its shell formed by the tough metal and carbon-composite material quickly gaining favor with higher-end PC makers. When I gripped the E7440 by the two ends and tried to twist it, it didn’t give one iota. Even the screen panel, a mere quarter-inch thick, barely flexed when I whipped the lid up by just its corner and snapped it shut again.

The E7440’s shell is fabricated from aluminum and carbon fiber.

Dell says the machine has passed no fewer than 18 MIL-STD-810G tests, including being subjected to extreme heat and cold, high humidity, vibration, drops onto a hard surface, blowing sand and dust, and liquid spills on the keyboard.

To use it is to love it

The Latitude E7440 has a gorgeous, non-glare, 14-inch IPS touchscreen with native resolution of 1920×1080 pixels and the best off-axis viewing I’ve seen so far. The keyboard flexes in its middle and its keys bounce a little much, but they don’t clatter and they render nearly every keystroke correctly. The slightly concave keys are nicely islanded from each other, and offer just the right level of friction. Four levels of backlighting are available, which makes the computer easier to use and reduces the load on the battery when you don’t need its brightest settings.

The Dell’s 1920×1080-pixel touchscreen looks great, but Lenovo’s pricey X1 Carbon Touch is available with a 2560×1440-pixel touchscreen. 

Business Connections

Too many Ultrabook designers drop important ports in pursuit of ever-thinner profiles. The E7440 offers nearly everything you could ask for in a laptop this size, including hardwired Ethernet, HDMI, mini DisplayPort, an SD card reader, and three USB 3.0 ports.

Dell’s business-oriented Ultrabook is a little thick in the middle. 

Many of these ports are located on the notebook’s rear deck, which makes them a bit of a hassle to access. Dell outfits the E7440 with an 802.11ac Wi-Fi adapter. But if you find yourself frequently deskbound, Dell includes a docking station port on the bottom of the computer. A combination VESA monitor stand and docking station is available for $225. You can further beef up the notebook’s enterprise chops with a mobile broadband adapter, a Smart card slot, and a fingerprint scanner.

Performance and battery life

Both machines have similar specs, but Lenovo’s X1 Carbon Touch outran Dell’s Latitude E7440 when it came to WorldBench.

Still, its benchmark scores left me just a little disappointed. It finished well behind the aforementioned X1 Carbon Touch, which is powered by the same CPU; and a little behind HP’s EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 , which runs on Intel’s Core i5-4200U processor.

The Latitude E7440 trailed on the PCMark 8: Work Test as well. 

Dell’s Ultrabook fared a little better in terms of battery life, and you can remove and replace its battery if you don’t mind carrying a spare. 

On the other hand, the battery in the X1 Carbon Touch’s pooped out in even less time, and it’s not swappable. But the X1 Carbon Touch’s battery charges faster, its 14-inch IPS screen delivers higher resolution (2560×1440 pixels), and it scored higher in our benchmarks. Both machines are built tough, but as I pointed out earlier, Lenovo’s is much lighter. On the final other hand is the X1 Carbon’s current price tag. The machine wasn’t even listed on Lenovo’s website when I wrote this review, and the third-party retailers that did have it on offer priced it considerably higher than what Lenovo quoted us when we reviewed it.

Bottom line: If money were no barrier, I’d buy Lenovo’s X1 Carbon Touch. But Dell’s cheaper Latitude E7440 even though it weighs more. It’s an exceptionally good business laptop.
